What we're about

This is a group dedicated to comedy and for lovers of comedy. This is also a group which is dedicated to helping people connect with each other in real life. We intend to host a lot of comedy events as well as other social events where people actually meet each other.

This is a Social Networking Group for Chicago Locals and Expats who want to meet other Locals and Expats in a relaxed and casual environment.

Our meetups are held once or twice a month. It is about meeting people, having fun and enjoying a few drinks without having to go to bed too late (You'll be at home by midnight, we promise!)

Chicago is a wonderful city but it is much nicer with friends who would like to make interesting connections after work.

While we are called the Expats Club, everyone is welcome to join. There is nothing better than expatriates and locals interacting and socialising together. It allows for interesting conversations and enriching experiences. We will help you shrink the time it takes to create a social network and that too with others who are also new here.

WANTED HOSTS / ORGANISERS

Needs a location

Hello members and friends,

Good day!

I am the organiser for 3 meetup groups in Chicago which together have over 11500 members. We have not been very active in these groups as old organisers have moved cities or their interests have changed. I would like to reinvigorate the groups and get them back into action.

Going forward we would like to arrange some drinks and socialising evenings and also some activity events for our groups. We are thus seeking new organisers and hosts who would volunteer their time and effort to host some meetups.

Organising and hosting is an extremely satisfying role which is also challenging at the same time. Organising gives you great insight into human psychology, group dynamics, strategy and event management. It also makes you the social leader of the group and enables you to rapidly expand your network.

It is a voluntary part time role and requires only a few hours a week (mainly on weekdays but also some weekends) and it is a great start for someone who has taken a break from work, just moved into the city, someone who needs to network for their main occupation or just for someone who is socially confident and loves meeting people. You can also sign up to host a one-off event and so it is not a long term commitment.

Please get in touch with me if you are interested.

My thanks and best regards

Dan

Organiser
